In 1993, a Special Interest Group, "Teaching in Educational Administration" (TEA/SIG), was born at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association as a result of work of the Division A (Administration) Task Force on Teaching and Learning in Educational Administration and the particular efforts of Jane Lindle and Paul Bredeson. In this essay, the authors note that Fulmer and Frank (1994) consistently referred to "teaching and learning" as the focus and work of the new SIG, yet, only the word "teaching" appeared in the official title. They present a proposal that contains the rationale recently sent to TEA/SIG members to change what they believe is an anachronistic name of a professional organization that has provided legitimization to the study of their work in preparing school leaders. While written specifically for the membership of TEA/SIG, the authors' proposal has much wider application and import beyond the SIG.
